Treating dandruff by decapitationThe next witness will be Mr. Frank Zappa (December 21, 1984)

something has gone horribly wrong 8-p
Prefer flash? · Embed · Questions/Feedback?

The PMRC proposal is an ill-conceived piece of nonsense which fails to deliver any real benefits to children, infringes the civil liberties of people who are not children, and promises to keep the courts busy for years
dealing with the interpretational and enforcemental problems inherent in the proposal's design.

It is my understanding that in law First Amendment issues are decided with a preference for the least restrictive alternative. In this context, the PMRC demands are the equivalent of treating dandruff by
decapitation.

No one has forced Mrs. Baker or Mrs. Gore to bring Prince or Sheena Easton into their homes. Thanks to the Constitution, they are free to buy other forms of music for their children. Apparently, they insist on purchasing
the works of contemporary recording artists in order to support a personal illusion of aerobic sophistication.
